100Pedals celebrated its first Cycling for Recovery Bike Ride and Addiction Awareness event on Saturday, April 16. It was an exciting event that featured over forty cyclists who took to the roads for a 34 or 63 mile ride. They returned from the ride to a band, food truck, and an assortment of speakers and sponsors eager to share their stories and their passion around the issues of substance abuse and addiction in our communities. Participating in this event were Parents of Addicted Loved Ones (PAL), Addiction Haven, Sonoran Prevention Works, Young People in Recovery, and Austin’s Journey.
While this was the first event of this kind for 100Pedals, this was just the beginning of what is going to be a monumental summer. This event was a preliminary kickoff for the 2016 Cycling for Recovery cross country bike ride. This Cycling for Recovery ride is a 3600 mile, 63 day bike trip from Santa Monica, CA to New York, NY with a mission to bring addiction awareness and education to communities across the country while reaching out to support those families who are suffering with the addiction of a loved one.
